Yesterday, there were multiple reports stating that the Rockets had interest in signing Carmelo Anthony. The native of Cameroon spent the 2015-16 and 16-17 seasons with the Clips before signing with the Rockets as a free agent prior to this past season.

Anthony and his representatives met with Rockets and Heat officials at the site of the NBA Summer League in recent days, league sources told ESPN...

Mbah a Moute has been a defensive stalwart throughout his 10-year career, averaging almost a steal per game throughout his tenure in the league and eclipsing that mark three of the past four seasons.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Carmelo Anthony has waived his no-trade clause and has begun meeting (with the Thunder's permission) with teams interested in acquiring his services this summer.

Executives are reportedly working on a solution that could see the team freed of Anthony's costly expiring contract, looking to offload the deal to a rival that would likely see Anthony waived to enter free agency. Mbah A Moute had a one-year deal last year with the Rockets worth $2.1 million.

But Houston, the Lakers and Miami are all said to be keen on signing Anthony if, as expected, he comes a free agent. Despite his defensive limitations, Anthony shot 37.2 percent on catch-and-shoot 3-pointers in his lone season with the Thunder, and made a career-high 169 3-pointers.

The Rockets must find a way to bring back Capela. He averaged 12.1 points and 22.7 minutes during his 41 games with the Rockets.
